Update 28 August 2020

Please see the following letter from Professor Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director, regarding the common cold and COVID-19 symptoms: Coronavirus – Jason Leitch Letter on testing and common colds – 31 August 2020

Face Coverings

This letter was sent out to all parents and carers this week: Face Covering Letter

From Monday students will be asked to wear face coverings when they are moving around the school in corridors and confined communal areas (such as toilets, social areas, PE changing rooms) where physical distancing is particularly difficult to maintain.

If any students is exempt from wearing a face covering, they will be issued with an exception card which can be obtained from their Guidance teacher.  If parents/carers have any queries around exemption, please contact Mr Offer (DHT Support) at admin@dunbargrammar.elcschool.org.uk

All students will have an extended registration on Monday from 8.30am until 9am to allow an online assembly which will explain practical details around this change.

Student Leadership Team

Following a comprehensive selection process which included an online hustings, staff and student vote and interviews, we are delighted to announce that the Head Boy and Girl are Matthew Pearson and Nancy Bird.

Next week Nancy and Matthew will work with Mrs Hamilton and Mr Offer in the recruitment of the Depute Team.

Work for Students Who are Absent

If any student is absent, work can be found for each subject on the individual Google classrooms.

Information Update

A pack is going home with students over the next week containing a PC1 and an Annual Data Check form which is required to be checked by parent/carers, updated as appropriate, signed and returned. Packs will contain photo permission forms, email consent forms and school closure forms if we do not hold a copy on file.

If you have no email address, it is essential that you inform the school. Where this is the case, the weekly email information is automatically updated on our website.
